Good day all,
Need your help,,,

After installing Windows7 ... Check on ALL CONTROL PANEL to see the remaining days countdown! In fact this part was disappeared! doesn't show! blank!

1/Why is that?
2/How to re active or get that part back?

I would like to see the countdown days at that part,, which will also allow me to active or change key but am currently not able!!

Thanks in advance,,,,

open your start menu, right-click COMPUTER and choose PROPERTIES.

Under WINDOWS ACTIVATION, what do you have?

if you see what I've attached, Windows is activated and genuine and there is no "countdown".

Hello Hani, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This will help show you how to see the System window again to see what I believe you are referring to.

Activate Windows 7 Online

Hope this helps,

Hani,

If you have a retail copy of Windows 7, then can do a repair install to fix this.

Doesn't work ,,, the issue is that the DVD Windows7 which i`v got from a friend of me, after installation completed it ask you to remove WAT and there will be no other option only to click on remove WAT ... guess for that reason the part or dialog which suppose to show the Windows activation at the right-click Computer doesn't show "blank" and my request or question is how i can get this part back to normal ... to see the remaining days which to active the copy of windows or at least show the Genuine logo??

With thanks to all ............. Hani

If you are getting an option to remove WAT (Windows Activation Technology), then it sounds like this is a modified pirated version of Windows 7. If so, then you will need to purchase a legal copy of Windows 7 with a legal product key number included with it to activate Windows 7.

We do not suppot illegal software here.
